When You're Dating Your Best Friend

What could be better than falling in love with your best friend?

When You're Dating Your Best Friend
Linn Ha

Dating your best friend is the best feeling in the world. Although I have other "best friends", like the ones at school, at church, and at work, my boyfriend is at the top of that list. I could say a lot of cheesy things, like how I couldn't imagine my life without him, or how he always makes me laugh and smile, but how is that any different than dating someone else?

When you date your best friend, you find yourself at ease. I'm most comfortable around my boyfriend. I don't ever feel like I have to pretend to be someone else. Even on our first date, I didn't hold back. I let him get to know the real me, not the person who society wants me to be.

When you date your best friend, you discover things about yourself that you never knew. You find yourself participating in the activities that he loves, and discovering that you love it as well. You start to pick up some of their habits, like the way you drive or the way you talk.

When you date your best friend, your entire outlook on life changes. You start to think less about yourself, and more about your significant other. Instead of thinking in the moment, you may find yourself thinking about the future, like how a choice will change that.

When you date your best friend, you end up spending a lot more time together. You can spend hours sitting on the couch and not speaking to each other, yet it is the best feeling in the world. And when you do go somewhere or do something fun, it's always ten times better now that you're with your best friend! Even running to Target together feels like an adventure.

When you date your best friend, you tell each other everything. When I receive good (or bad) news, my significant other is always the first to know. Whether it's about the exam I just got back, or that I saw a dog on the street, he is the first person I tell. When I need to complain about something (or someone...), I always talk to him--even if the person I'm complaining about is him!

When you date your best friend, your biggest fear is losing each other. Sometimes that little thought of What if we break up? pops into my head, and it is the worst feeling. Losing each other would mean more than just a break up, it would mean losing the person that means most to you--your best friend.

When you're dating your best friend, you have a different form of communication. Whether it's the look or you finishing each other's sentences, you have a way of talking to each other that no one else understands. It's what makes your relationship so unique.

When you're dating your best friends, you share a lot of laughter. From inside jokes to silly moments, you bring out each other's inner child. Sharing laughter with the person you love most is always a great feeling.

When you date your best friend, you experience love in a way you never knew existed. I find myself thinking about my significant other all the time, and I can't help but feel so incredibly lucky that I'm in love with my best friend.

So, to my best friend and my boyfriend: Thank you for everything you have done for me. You're the Jim to my Pam, but you're also the Patrick to my SpongeBob. I love you!

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.
